The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers apparently just can’t get enough of each other.
There certainly was no love lost between these two teams, and that was apparent in a physical and intense first round playoff series that saw the Clippers preview in seven games.
However, they were done battling. According to Sam Amick of USA Today Sports, the two teams had an altercation in a hallway outside their respective locker rooms.
Amick reports that Marreese Speights and Chris Paul were the instigators for their respective teams. Matt Barnes and Glen Davis were also named as players who were involved. A majority of the Warriors and some Clippers were gathered together, according to Amick. The police were actually called in, but no punches were thrown.
According to Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports, Speights had to be held back. Spears reports that the Warriors left their locker room to confront the Clippers after they heard some comments, one of which was an assistant coach yelling, “It’s kind of quiet in there!” at the Warriors locker room.
Perhaps a full version of the incident will emerge in the morning, but boy oh boy, these two teams do not like each other, and this is excellent proof why.
